The SLRD requires all residents of local Water Systems to exercise good water conservation practices.
Water Restrictions are an effective way of ensuring everyone has enough treated drinking water and adequate water supplies to protect our communities from fires during dry summer months. With population growth and climate change, there is increasing pressure on our water supplies
The SLRD has contracted BGC Engineering to undertake a detailed quantitative landslide hazard and risk assessment of the area in and around Jason Creek and Reid Road. In support of this project, you may see them conducting fieldwork in the area on July 20-22 and July 25-27, 2022. In cases where fieldwork is required on specific private properties, those property owners have been contacted and granted permission for access.
The BC Wildfire Service and the Lil’wat Nation are continuing with a prescribed burn project 9 kilometres north of the Village of Pemberton, BC, in an area referred locally as the Owl Creek Drainage. This is a collaboration between Lil’wat Forestry Ventures (LFV), the forestry division of the Lil’wat First Nation, and BC Wildfire Service (BCWS).
Monday, July 18 and Tuesday, July 19, 2022 Pemberton North water system users may notice some discolouration of water as a result of watermain flushing.
Residents are advised to run their water until it is clear before using.
Watermain flushing is an important part of water distribution maintenance as it aids in the improvement of water quality.
